BIRMINGHAM, AL (WAFF) - A federal judge sentenced a Huntsville man to prison for reporting false threats against the President of the United States.
Charles Thurman , II, was immediately taken into custody Friday after U.S. District Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn sentenced him to four month in prison.
Thurman was also fined a $1,000 and ordered that he be placed on supervised release for three years after he serves his prison term.
Thurman pleaded guilty in April to charges he sent e-mails to the White House claiming another man was threatening the President's life.
A Secret Service investigation revealed Thurman sent all the e-mails which contained the false threats.
